Jiminy Crispness!

This Christmas carol is a bit of a family tradition. A framed version of the song -- a set of newspaper clippings, in fact -- graces our dining room around this time of year. Though I don't know all the lyrics, it's hard to forget about poor "Nora freezin' on the trolley." These panels from The Pogo Papers don't capture the entire song, but I think they do capture its essence.

I keep forgetting how much I used to like Walt Kelly. Really should get reacquainted with the denizens of the Okefenokee Swamp. That would be a good New Years Resolution, but for now... Happy Holidays!
